Center party selects new Mideast friends
After red-green coalition , the Center party prefers non-socialist friends for Israel and the Palestinian territories .

Per Anders Hoel
Just two months after the change of government the Center Party would rather support the Progressive pary ,  the Conservatives, the Christian Democrats and the Liberals on Middle East policy than the old government buddies Labor and Socialistic Left

Balance . In a parliamentary document, the Center party leader Liv Signe Navarsete signed a petition calling for a  “balanced ” Middle East policy .

Precisely the word “balanced ” is the conservative parties guarantee that the Solberg government will act less biased in the difficult  Middle East politics .


the Party leader and spokesperson , Liv Signe Navarsete , feels at ease with the choice :

– The coalition government policy was not balanced enough?

– The Center party is a party that is concerned with justice. And the balance we are aiming for , also states that Israel and Palestine should exist in peace within secure borders .

Criticism . Navarsete denies that Q now shifting policies:

– This should not be read as a criticism of previous governments , she points out.

– And it does not feel uncomfortable to stand with the progressive and the conservatives ?

– No – it does not mean that we support Israel in everything , responding Party leader.
